Leading sound system and reggae producer celebrates UK bass culture

A celebration of bass culture featuring one of the original British reggae sound systems: vibe controller Aba Shanti-I has been making walls and floors shake around Europe for three decades and is a mainstay of Notting Hill Carnival. Aba welcomes all races, creeds and colours to his parties under the motto 'We don't segregate, we integrate'. 

Also on hand is veteran industry heavyweight Dennis Bovell MBE, a renowned artist in his own right as well as noted for studio work with everyone from Boomtown Rats to Sade. Career highlights include founding Brit reggae pioneers Matumbi, producing Janet Kay's lovers rock anthem Silly Games and acting as musical director for Steve McQueen's landmark BBC drama Small Axe.

Completing the bill is Brighton Festival Guest Director Nabihah Iqbal, who released her acclaimed debut album of shimmering electronica Weighing of the Heart on Ninja Tune in 2017
